I had not thought of it until BlazingPedals made the folowing comment in the RAGBRAI thread Now I have ridden with others but it is mostly friends just banging around. I have also ridden in groups on motorcycles and each group has a sort of set plan as to how they interact and ride together. I know each small group of people who regularly ride together work itout as to how they ride. What I would like to see addressed is group riding etiquette. Stuff that should be a basis for all rides with all types and sizes of groups to help a person avoid angering others or causing injuries and wrecks. What does a person have to do? In a small group of friends you can set the protocol before the ride but what if you are in a very large group? I am asking for basics but basics that must be followed in every multiperson ride.
